Hi everyone! Let’s get down to the nitty gritty of iLipo. A treatment I just started yesterday, April 07, 2015.
My measurements were taken before the procedure:
BEFORE Upper – 86.5, Middle – 95, Lower - 98
WATCH IT ALL HAPPEN IN THIS VLOG!
How does iLipo work?
STEP ONE. Low level lasers have been utilized as effective treatments in fat reduction for several years. The i-Lipo Ultra low level lasers are released through the treatment pads, triggering a chemical signal in the fat cells that breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, which are released through the cell membranes. Fat content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be “burned off” during a period of post-treatment exercise.
15 mins on the left, 15 mins on the right. At first, I did not feel anything, so the energy level (watts) was increased. I felt heat and a little bit of itchiness.
After the laser treatment, you will see red spots, but no need to be alarmed! It’s normal, and mine went away the next day. NO PAIN AT ALL.
My measurements after the laser treatment -
2 inches off my upper, 1 inch off my middle, and 2 inches ++ on my lower. WHY? It’s the molten fat. This is why you have to RELEASE IT (via working out, peeing, pooing)
STEP TWO. Infrared laser vacuum massage is performed after the laser treatment to enhance lymphatic draining, mobilising the released fat from the target area. This also enhances circulation in the area, promotes collagen growth and assists in the breakdown of fibrous cellulite tissue to achieve a slimmer, firmer, and smoother looking skin.
VACUUM MASSAGE! I found this part the most painful. It varies din talaga. It depends on your pain tolerance! This step is super quick lang, 3 passes on each area, and you’re done. This method mobilises the released fat para mabilis mo mailabas.
STEP THREE. Radiofrequency (RF) is based on the emission of high frequency radio electric waves deep into the dermis which results in thermal energy being produced in the tissue that causes existing collagen to contract and tone and tighten the skin; synthesis of new connective tissue fibres to improve skin condition and improve scars such as stretchmarks; and also causes thermal stimulation of cellular functions and improved blood circulation to support cell lipolysis.
RF is not new to me as this is also done with the Geneo Super Facial, only difference, it’s done on the tummy! NO PAIN, just heat sensation, they adjust the intensity of the heat according to your liking.
RF IS DONE TO IMPROVE THE SAGGING AFTER THE VACUUM MASSAGE. This tones everything! Perfect for that puson, stretchmarks and other scars!
IT DOESN’T END THERE…
What I Did After the i-Lipo?
1. I did not eat for 2 hours! You need to keep moving so that you can turn the molten fat into energy and release it via sweating! Kaya you need to workout after the treatment.
2. I worked out for 20 minutes (napawisan ng bongga) I did ab works, stretches…etc. *Light workout*
3. I ate light dinner only (a can of tuna flakes, skyflakes, egg and a cup of tea)
4. I also peed and did number 2 before going to bed.
THE MORNING AFTER?
Here’s the best part. I woke up with 0 redness (from the laser treatment) and no more bloating, everything seems to be so much tighter, too! This is a raw photograph. No edits. No filters. I figured I needed to use my DLSR to show you the REAL AFTER photo, and not my phone, since you can do tricks with the phone. I am breathing in this photo, I just needed to lift my dress and prevent my upper area from being exposed.
THIS IS AFTER JUST ONE SESSION OF THE iLipo!
Let’s do the photos side by side… Before the iLipo treatment, and the day after.
P.S. I did not get whiter, there is inconsistency in lighting due to different venue settings. (L in studio, R in my apartment)
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Other clinics offer it at 15,000.00 per session, but with DermaViews -

How many treatments do you need?
It is recommended to get 8-10 sessions to optimum results.
How long is each treatment?
Typically approximately 45 to 1 hour long. Body analysis measurement + 20 mins of laser treatment, 10-15 mins of vacuum massage, followed by 10-15mins of RF treatment.
The exact length of appointment will be dependent on the body area being treated. Depending on individual goals and requirements, a period of post treatment exercise may be advised which may accelerate your goal achievements and support long term maintenance.
Is it comfortable?
Most people feel very little during the first step of treatment and often find it relaxing and comfortable. A typical sensation felt is a slight warmth where the treatment pads are in contact with the skin.
The second and third steps of treatment involves vacuum massage and RF which will feel a little more sensation than the first step, but will be delivered to a level that is acceptable to you.
Is it suitable for everyone?
It can be used on both men and women, and can treat all areas of the body except the female breast. People with certain medical conditions cannot use the iLipo.
Is it safe?
Yes. Independent clinical studies have shown iLipo to be completely safe with no side effects. The laser simple triggers a natural reaction of fat cell release. The process does not cause any damage and cells remain intact, just smaller, giving immediate results. The iLipo is FDA CLEARED.
How long will the results last?
Results are long trm, provided your calorie intake and eating plan is stable, and you engage in regular execise.
When will I see results?
Often results can be seen immediately and improve with every treatment. Over the course of 8 sessions, you can achieve dramatic reshaping of the body, fat reduction, and cellulite improvement and skin conditioning and tightening.
Remember, use the iLipo treatment WITH PROPER EXERCISE and DIET to get MAXIMUM RESULTS!
